Obama’s gift to Iran

President Obama and his crooked-shooting sidekick, Secretary of State John Kerry, are desperate for an agreement with Iran, placing some meaningless restrictions on Tehran’s nuclear-weapons ambitions. At the outset of his “reign,” Mr. Obama was also anxious to reduce our nuclear weapon stockpile to a state of nonexistence, and that is no doubt to be accomplished in some future executive order.

U.S. skilled labor in short supply

Manufacturing has declined in the United States because the nature of manufacturing has changed. Hand labor can be and has been largely replaced by machines, and skilled labor has become even more important as a result.

More acts like Indiana’s needed

I am tired of the Tim Cooks and Marc Benioffs of the world pushing their self-righteous and sanctimonious versions of “civil rights” and morality onto the rest of society (“Tim Cook, Apple CEO, calls ‘religious objection’ laws dangerous,” Web, March 30).

Not all discrimination is bad

It seems to me there is a false underlying assumption about the criticism of Indiana’s religious freedom law (“Obama now hits religious freedom in Indiana,” Page I, March 30). We are being conditioned to think of all discrimination as bad. I remember when a discriminating shopper was thought of as one who had standards of quality and would only buy products that came up to those standards. Is that type of discrimination bad?

Vote out establishment politicians

Every nation’s history has its share of turning points, events that change its course. The great ones are remembered in history. America’s best-known recent turning point occurred on Aug. 6, 1945, when the United States cemented its place as the most powerful nation in the history of mankind.

Say no to convention switch

I am tired of conservatives being blamed for the actions of libertarians who wish to shift to a nominating convention. This contingent says a convention would be to the benefit of conservative candidates, but the only Republican that would benefit from such a switch would be Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul.

Hypocrite Obama has armed guards

Now that the Islamic State has declared war on our stateside personnel ("U.S. sees 'more sophistication' in Islamic State cyber capabilities," Web, March 21) it is time President Obama rescinded his inappropriate executive order denying officers and staff noncommissioned officers the ability to be armed while on base or when traveling to and from their homes and quarters.

Penalty for straying from ‘tribe’?

The Washington Times has risen one notch in my estimation by publishing Eric Althoff's article on former Rep. Bob Inglis, South Carolina Republican ("Bob Inglis breaks from Republican Party, advocates action to fight climate change," Web, March 24). While a climate change denier such as Willy Soon is being called a hero (rather than a rogue for accepting $1 million to shill for the fossil-fuel industry), a real hero such as Mr. Inglis gets booted out of the "tribe" for having the temerity to take a principled position not endorsed by Rush Limbaugh or Fox News.

Islamic State won't stay in Middle East

Last summer I wrote several letters urging U.S. forces to take out the Islamic State before the terrorist group strikes America. I argued that the Islamic State might have its sights set on Capitol Hill or Hollywood. Given the terrorists' twisted logic, they believe these two iconic landmarks are the symbols of American hedonism and must be destroyed.

Corizon can serve DC jail well

Your recent article, "DC Jail medical contract sparks city council criticism" (Web, March 18), may leave readers with a faulty impression of our company and what's at stake in the pending D.C. City Council vote to approve our award.

Celebrate global warmth

Just 13,000 years ago Earth was in the grip of a deathly ice age. Sea levels were indeed much lower than they are now, but much of the land surface was covered by thick sheets of ice. Life struggled to survive and many species were extinguished by the sterile, suffocating ice.

Looks can be deceiving

It doesn't surprise me that millionaire Robert Durst has been linked to the 1971 disappearance of a female Vermont college student and is the prime suspect in the murders of a neighbor and friend and in the disappearance and likely murder of his wife, Kathleen Durst ("Robert Durst, Houston millionaire, returning to court in New Orleans," Web, March 23).

Bongino for Senate

I know it is still early, but so far only Maryland Democratic representatives Chris Van Hollen, District 8, and Donna Edwards, District 4, have announced plans to run for retiring Sen. Barbara Mikulski's open Senate seat. This does not give Maryland voters any good choices or hope for making things better in Maryland.

GOP must be the anti-Obama

President Obama's policies have failed, he ignores the Constitution and has the Department of Justice ensure that his will becomes de facto law. He will allow Iran to produce nuclear weapons and is willing to abandon Israel. Knowing that, it would be important not to have another Obama-like Democratic president in 2017, one who would complete the transformation of the United States into a government in total control of all aspects of citizens' lives.

GMD insurance against Iran

One way to neutralize a nuclear Iran without the kind of costly entanglements your columnist predicts is to bolster our defense against a potential Iranian attack ("Russia's endgame and Obama's end run in the Iran nuclear talks," Web, March 16).

Obama the duplicitous one

"Words matter," was White House press secretary Josh Earnest's recent explanation of the Obama administration's intent to reassess its support for Israel regardless of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's clarification of his campaign comments "Benjamin Netanyahu win forces Obama to re-evaluate Middle East peace strategy," Web, March 18). But as words and actions go, President Obama has been the duplicitous one.

Cancer screenings save lives

With March being Colon Cancer Awareness Month, it's time that the public and media paid more attention to this silent and deadly disease. Despite being the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the third leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in the United States, the stigma of colon cancer screenings still exists in the United States and abroad.
